It's shutting down cause it's overheating, when the gfx card hits about 96'c it shuts down...
Buy a laptop cooler pad, or clean the cooling system on the laptop(dust), also you can download throttlestop(see guides for it).
That's why laptops aren't good for gaming.

Properly designed and engineered laptops are great for gaming. Unfortunately, Acer builds many laptop models with inadequate cooling solutions.

Many Acer owners are using ThrottleStop to reduce the speed of their CPU. This reduces the amount of heat it puts out and helps prevent the laptop from reaching the Acer shutdown temperature.

Kind of sad when a laptop can not run the CPU and GPU at their specified speed but beyond selling your laptop, there isn't much you can do about this. Make sure that the heatsink is not full of dust. You also might have to remove the heatsink and replace the thermal paste with something decent.

If the game runs fine on battery set the power settings to run the same on AC as on battery.
